Not satisfied with playing a starring role in the downfall of Paris Saint-Germain in one of the greatest Champions League comebacks ever, Neymar took to social media to rub some salt in the wounds.

PSG crumbled at the Nou Camp on Wednesday night, losing 6-1 in the most dramatic of fashions, despite arriving with a 4-0 advantage from the first leg in Paris two weeks ago.

Neymar was instrumental in the comeback, scoring a penalty and a free kick and playing the left, lofted pass over the PSG defence in the 95th minute for Sergi Roberto to poke home to win the tie.

And clearly not satisfied with embarrassing the French champions on the pitch, he did it off the pitch too, in response to an Instagram post from midfielder Adrien Rabiot after PSG took a 4-0 first-leg lead.

Rabiot posted a photo of himself and Layvin Kurzawa at a post-match anti-doping test holding up four fingers – for the number of goals the Parisians scored – with his teammate holding up the two-fingered ‘peace’ sign.

However, Neymar doctored the image by adding the number of fingers on show, six, with a series of laughing emojis.

Neymar told BeIN Sports after the game: “Congratulations to the whole team because we believed until the end. This is the best game I’ve ever played.”
